For a long time it looked as if our U21 would secure at least one point, if not three, in the away game at FV Schwalbach - but in the final phase our second from coach Marco Emich had to concede two goals, in the end our team lost with 1: 3 (1: 1).

"It was a game in which everything turned completely against us," said Emich after the game. His team started the away game against the relegation-threatened Schwalbachers really well, had everything under control, the better chance of scoring - and could also achieve the lead. In the 18th minute it was Nico Floegel who gave our U21 a 1-0 lead. "After that, we still had very good chances to extend the lead," said Emich, but in the end there was no luck. And so the FV Schwalbach came back into the game. The host was able to take advantage of the carelessness of the Elversberg second and Maximilian Gabriel scored the goal for the 1-1 equalizer in the first half (26th).

Nevertheless, our U21 continued to run. In the second half, the SVE made the better team, only the goal simply did not want to fall. The greatest opportunity for the Elversberg winning goal had five minutes before the end of Kai Merk, whose conclusion was still clarified on the line. And then, in the last few minutes, Schwalbach managed to turn the game around. One minute before the end of regular time, the opponent was awarded a questionable penalty, which Justin Mayan converted to 2-1 (89th). And in added time, when our second then threw everything forward and took more risk to save the point, the FV finally put the lid on it. Maximilian Gabriel completed the counterattack and scored his second goal for the 3-1 final score for Schwalbach (90. + 3). "A lot has really happened against us," said Emich, who, after the second defeat in a row, does not want to immediately resign: "We have to make sure that we keep our nerve and keep going."

Because there are enough reasons to stay positive. Our second is still in second place in the table, with one game less. The field at the top has moved closer together, but our team still has every chance. Next weekend there will be another one on three points when our U21 receives the TuS Herrensohr for their home game on Sunday, April 14th. The game in the Kohlwald Stadium begins at 15.00 p.m.
